Getting Around To It

Between the Severe Colds, Severe Weather and Severe Lack of Funds, progress is moving slowly this winter. It’s comforting to know that our house will not be affected by the frequent 90+ mph wind gusts. (Though that’s not the case with the trailer we are now living in) And once we waterproof and bury the house it will be dry and warm too. We are saving up to do the waterproofing this summer.

We did however manage to frame in the curved corner on the wall between the kitchen and bathroom.  We first created a template to give us the desired radius shape. Then we cut out the plywood blocking.  It’s great having a bandsaw to make these cuts.

The curved framing will be covered with flexible plywood and coated with mud to match the drywall on the flat part of the walls. (Way down the road from now)

I’m pleased with how this is working out as it just didn’t seem right to have a square corner here.  It will add a “softness” to our curvaceous structure.
